|Mississippi River Flood of 1927||
Subject: another natural disaster
It's all President Bush's fault.
Subject: Misissippi Tover Flood of 1927
The quality of the film is unimportant as the silent images ring clear to the mass devaststion. For those looking for a more clear image of the glood and its impact, I suggest the PBS documentay on the 1927 flood.
Subject: Sensitive shots
I was struck by the humanity that oozes from many of the shots, despite the poor quality of the video. At times, the camera seems invisible, capturing people being themselves. At other times, the camera engages its subject - and thus the viewer, by proxy. A wonderful find in my search for appropriate period footage.

Almost 18 min of silent"Black screen"

Quite interesting to see this film, and then compare it to the Hurricanes that happened in Louisiana recently. ThereÃÂs a number of striking comparisons. People seem to be willing to help each other out any way they can. People seemed to have been stranded for a long time before help came (love the makeshift dwellings they made in old railway cars), Politicians touring touring touring the areas, and not really doing anything (the President doesnÃÂt come out, only sending Hoover to get his boots wet). The living arrangements, or camps, were all neat teepees, they had contests to see who had the neatest one. And meanwhile, in the colored peopleÃÂs camp, presumably the same type of fun was happening thereÃÂ
